First thing I did was make the tutus. Yes, that's right. More than one tutu. Two tutus, truthfully. (I love alliteration.) I wanted a very layered look and that was the easiest way I could think of. If you want step-by-step directions on how to make your own, The Idea Room is the place to go. This is pretty much the technique I used and the model is darling.
|Tulle, tulle, and more tulle.|
The craft store had ran out of orange pre-cut tulle, so I bought three yards off the bolt and cut it myself. I started this project out using my brand-spanking-new rotary cutter. Yeah...
|Hello Kitty "boo-boo stickers" are a must!|
|Orange tutu with fabric leaves hot glued on.|
|Both tutus layered together.|
|The front. Kind of blurry, so you'll just have to believe me, I guess.|
|The back. Ignore the glue blobs. I did.|
|Plain wings are sad wings.|
|I used a Prismacolor marker in Dark Brown to color the straps.|
|Finished! Told you this was super easy!|
|Put something inside the shirt so the paint won't soak all the way through.|
|I cut two pieces of fleece. The bag is 30 x 11 inches. The strap is 1 x 22 inches.|
|I sewed the handles on by hand and added buttons for cuteness.|
|More fabric leaves!|
